'Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby': Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy Weather the Storm (Exclusive Video)
The Weinstein Co. film centers on a couple trying to revive their relationship after a tragedy
The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them weaves together the individual experiences of Eleanor (Jessica Chastain) and Conor (James McAvoy), an estranged couple aiming to revive their relationship in the face of tragedy.
Here, The Hollywood Reporter debuts an exclusive clip, giving viewers a glimpse of the relationship between Conor and Eleanor as they sit in a car during a storm.
The film, produced by Dreambridge Films and distributed by The Weinstein Co., also stars Viola Davis, Bill Hader and Ciaran Hinds.
Directed by Ned Benson, the project first screened as two films: Him and Her, at the Toronto Film Festival one year ago, and then the Them version screened at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
Chastain, who is also a producer on the film, and Benson have actually known each other for years, as they told THR in Cannes. "I've always thought he was a beautiful writer," says Chastain of her director. She revealed that she, Benson and co-star Jess Weixler even lived together in Santa Monica when they were first starting out in their careers.
Them was released in limited theaters on Sept. 12 and expands on Sept. 19; Her and Him will follow on Oct. 10.
